MACAULAY McGOWAN asked his corner what the score was in the Manchester derby DURING his fight with Kieron Conway.
The super-middleweight – who stepped into fight on Anthony Joshua’s undercard on a week’s notice – is an avid City fan.
And despite facing an uphill battle in the ring – his thoughts were still on the result of the derby.
He twice asked: “What’s the score with City.”
Someone out of shot then informs him the score was goalless.
Fans online were left in hysterics with McGowan’s ‘priorities’ but reckon he will be let down with the match.
Former pro boxer and footballer Curtis Woodhouse said: “This guy.”
One said: “Most entertaining part of the derby took place outside the derby.”
Another said: “Love to see it.”
One added: “Not missing much mate.”

And it ended in a stalemate at Old Trafford, with the rivals sharing the points.
But in the ring it was a much more convincing tale of events as McGowan was dominated over ten rounds.
Conway put on a masterclass as he outboxed his rival, who filled in for Souleymane Cissokho on short notice.
McGowan is not the only boxer to be distracted while getting instructions from his trainer in the corner.
Heavyweight Fabio Wardley last year interrupted his corner to ask if he could get a Five Guys burger after his fight.
